Our first speaker today was Mary Walker of Walker Solutions in Golden, Colorado. Today Mary took the time to speak about her coaching style. Human resource coaching sounds more corporate than personal but business coaching can affect both aspects of your life. Coaching is an exploration process to find out what drives you and with Mary Walker she is trying to find out what makes your heart sing. This exploration is a six-month process that will change your path. Are you driven by fear and being out of your comfort zone? Coaching will help you work through this and works with you to devote time to examine what motivates and not that which wastes your time. Coaching will create a ripple effect in your life – touching more people than your usual circle and expanding that circle. The momentum of your influence grows – even simple things like smiling at a waiter or helping someone in the grocery store – these people will pay it forward.
When starting in a coaching situation, Mary focuses on her clients’ intention – their thoughts, deeds and offerings. Whether it’s business or is it the right thing to do. She will also look at the patterns in your relationships – she can more easily see these patterns form the outside looking in and work with you to equal the balance.
Business coaching is not a one size fits all type of program and Mary designs the program to what you need for your business. If you are looking for a business coach to get you out of a rut give Mary Walker and Walker Solutions a call!

The second speaker today was Lori Bush-Engel of Modern Woodmen of America in Golden, Colorado. Her talk today was about the passion she feels about the work that she does.
Why I Do What I Do –
I’m passionate about helping my members determine their financial goals. We work together to create a plan based on their unique needs.  I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with all families, singles, those approaching retirement and business owners.

I am very proud of earning Rookie of the Year in 2010 and Agent of the Year in 2011, earning Modern Woodmen trips, earning my FIC and CFFM designations, and especially earning my clients’ trust to help them when planning for life.

Before Modern Woodmen, I was in the mortgage industry and worked as operations manager for several entrepreneurs.

I chose Modern Woodmen because – I believe in being benevolent, from one person to a whole organization. We give to each other as members and give back as an organization.

The best part of my career is that whether I’m helping my clients with their retirement planning and/or protecting their families and businesses with life insurance, I feel good knowing they can rest their head on their pillow at night knowing they have their planning for life in place.

A favorite moment in my career was when –

I experienced my first death claim, which involved a young family where the wife/mother was killed. Because I helped them put their life insurance in place for the parents and kids, I was able to deliver a check to the family so they could move back to their hometown and re-establish their new norm.
If you are looking for a financial services person who truly cares for each and every one of her clients – give Lori Bush-Engel a call.
